Clouds become more accessible

    The good news came to us from across the ocean.
    Amazon AWS EC2 service added support for micro configurations up to 613Mb.


    The price of Linux configuration starts at $ 0.02 per hour. That with constant use will cost $ 15 per month, which is significantly lower than that of Small instance - $ 0.085 per hour.
    I myself have been trying various OSes and settings for about a year, but so far there is no need to constantly keep and pay for my server. And in this situation, and in my case, it makes sense to start and maintain a normal dedicated server. Both 32 and 64-bit architectures are available. I am personally attracted by Amazon’s flexibility of settings, extensibility and, of course, support from one of the most respected offices.

    You can read more in the documentation on Amazon .
    For those who have not tried it, a good introduction is available in the corresponding habratopika .
